Teams that are spread out across geographies, time zones and cultures face different challenges than co-located teams. In Nomadic's virtual team coaching interventions we support these teams on their journey to high performance.
Typical challenges for virtual teams:
In virtual teams it is easy for misunderstandings to occur. Conflict lurks closely under the surface. Building 'virtual closeness' is necessary to make team members commit to the team and its purpose in order to become a high performing team. A key pitfall for globally dispersed teams is to disengage mentally and emotionally; this is the first step on the road to failure. It can also lead to an 'us and them' culture, where different employees from different locations feel disconnected from each other. We see many virtual teams struggling with engagement and connection.
We are optimistic. We believe virtual teamwork can be equally rewarding as co-located teamwork. Working virtually is not second best and that is the premise that we work from.
Coaching of virtual teams can strengthen virtual team leadership and increase engagement by building virtual closeness. Also, it can help create smart use of communication technology: what technology works best for which task? This way we can help to optimise the balance between synchronous and asynchronous tools used within a virtual team.
We often include individual or team coaching in our virtual training programme designs. Coaching sessions dramatically increase the impact of any intervention, as it helps teams or individuals to apply learnings and achieve their personal development goals.
